Nostradamus C3 Q75: The science of astronomy terrorists and the art of future-seeing.
Copyright: Allan Webber, December 2015

Science ( icence S) is found as an anagram in this verse and this word provides links to C1 Q17 and fourteen other verses. The text of the current verse is dominated by climatic events while the anagrams deal with the horrors of terrorism in a scientific age. These include supernovae ( ſe Pau veron), gaseous ( agouſſe), envapour ( Pau veron) and canceriser ( icence Sarr) but these are supported by timing clues that at first seem unrelated. There is for example a theme of terror carried by anagrams such as terrorising ( ngs terroir), terrorised hangs ( terroirs de - ſang h) and misdeed ( mides De).

The anagrams for rebuilding the intended prophecy include:

 gaseous supernovae science canceriser
Pau verone Vicence Sarragouſſe

middle-ages telegnosis (knowledge of future events) terrorising angu[i]sh terrorised  genitors hung
De glaiues loings terroirs de ſang humides

envied graal DNA dragon god uses espouse site invader predesignates
Peſte ſi grande viendra a la grand gouſſe

he produce tribes best line source legions redeem
Proche ſecours et bien loing les remede
Pau, verone, Vicence, Sarragousse,
From distant swords lands wet with blood:
Very great plague will come with the great shell,
Relief near, and the remedies very far.
Pau verone Vicence Sarragouſſe
De glaiues loings terroirs de ſang humides
Peſte ſi grande viendra a la grand gouſſe
Proche ſecours et bien loing les remedes.

Several themes in this verse  seemed tied to the Middle-ages and to anagrams for Sades terrorising misdeed hung ( ngs terroir- s de ſa -ng hu - mides De). The Maquis de Sade comes to mind but he was alive two hundred years after Nostradamus' death. These anagrams do however have a very prescient connection since the de Sade family had a connection to Nostradamus' birth place in Provence. Below is an extract from a tourist brochure from St Remy.

Other renowned figures associated with the village include the Marquis de Sade, whose family manor the Hotel de Sade is located here (now the Musee Archeologique). St Remy is also the birth place of Nostradamus.

But this still leaves a gap between Nostradamus and the Marquis, a gap that other anagrams help to explain. One of these is telegnosis ( es loings te) which means foreseeing events from the future and this is reinforced by anagrams such as predesignates ( Peſte ſi grande) and prechose source ( Proche ſ - ecours). So Nostradamus is giving clues that this time period in the eigteenth century is important and that importance lies in the gaseous supernovae reference. In the extract below is a brief extract that sets out the date and circumstance of how such events as supernovae and other non-eternal stellar objects came to be recorded in a scientific manner (Messier objects).

The Messier objects (from Wikipedia) are a set of astronomical objects first listed by French astronomer Charles Messier in 1771.[1] Messier was a comet hunter, and was frustrated by objects which resembled but were not comets, so he compiled a list of them,[2] in collaboration with his assistant Pierre Mechain, to avoid wasting time on them.

The term supernovae has no place in the vocabulary of a 16th century man who died in 1568 since the first supernovae that has a recorded history was observed in 1572 and the term was not applied to this event or any other until some time after this 1572 Supernovae.

So this verse is meant to convey Nostradamus' capability in scientific matters as well as tell a story relevant to the end of this century. This connection to the future is conveyed by the anagrams of the last two lines in which there are strong indications that all the foregoing was meant to lead to the dark and gloomy events that men will see.

It is much like seeing in a flaming mirror, where the vision of the great events is clouded, sad, prodigious and calamitous. Events that in due time will fall upon the principal worshippers, firstly upon the temples of God; secondly, upon those who, sustained by the earth, approach such a decadence. Also a thousand other calamitous events which will be known to happen in due time.
